When it comes to horseback riding, we focus especially on Argentina, Chile and Ecuador, which combine a rich gaucho heritage and breathtaking scenery with charming family-run farmsteads. Most of our properties offer good horses and a handful specialize in top-class riding holidays, where the quality of the mounts matches the splendor of landscapes and the warmth and knowledge of local guides.
You can ride from estancia to estancia, stopping to cast a line or dip into electric-blue glacier meltwater lakes; or join the gauchos on cattle drives, sleeping under canvas and cooking over campfires. All these experiences are tailored to meet the personal needs and budgets of each guest and can be as raw or as pampered as you choose, depending on the estancia and region.
